Here's a loaded question.

Who among the posters on this forum best personifies a particular character from WoLaS?

I'd like to vote Trys as Asandir.

Ok, I'll bite (well nibble anyway)... why Asandir?

Besides the fact that you've been around forever? :-)

For starters you act as Ms Wurts' field agent into the dangerous lands of the forum... plus Asandir is also known as Fiendquencher, and i'm sure if a troller ever dared set foot in the forum they'd get quenched pretty fast!

THAT'S putting it mildly! :-O

I'd agree he IS similar to Asandir, only Asandir with a SERIOUS 'tude, ESPECIALLY when it comes to pests. About a year ago, the board was down for nearly a week while he chased the spammers out.

So maybe we have the eighth member of the F7 -

Trystane Gryphon, Spamquencher! :-O

Oh that's harsh.

Come on! Ms Wurts is evil and manipulative, i mean the number of times she's teased us with snippets of books :-)

... but seriously, both Ms Wurts and Morriel make plans for the longterm, theyre quite willing to wait years for a plot to unfold and hand them victory :-) They're dedicated to their cause/goal and will see it through to the end.

And uh Ms Wurts is really pretty like post possession Morriel! (/grovel)

I didn't really know where to post this - haven't posted much for a while but just on my 3rd read of Stormed Fortress and mesmerised by Glendien's encounter with Asandir in the King's Chamber. I am a little slow on the uptake at times, which is why I need to read books (especially Janny's) a few times to really get it. Just wanted to say how I've never been so struck before by Glendien's straits. I feel so much empathy for her sense of grief, remorse and inadequacy. Also for Asandir's compassion for her. It is so poignant and so beautifully written and I think I am fully and finally (!) grasping the nuances for the first time. A delightful read - thanks Janny.

HJ - you are so welcome....these books were MEANT for multiple re-reads, to glean all the depth and nuance. Thanks for posting.

It's a total pleasure, Janny. Thanks for your lovely response x
